FINANCING OF USED SPORTSMOBILES

PEOPLE BUYING USED SPORTSMOBILES OBTAINING FINANCING HAS BEEN DIFFICULT DUE TO NADA AND KELLY BLUE BOOK HAVING ALMOST NO INFO ON THESE VANS. IS THAT SPORTSMOBILES FAULT FOR NOT SUBMITTING INFORMATION TO NADA CONCERNING UPGRADES ON THE VANS OR HAVE THEY NEVER SUBMITTED INFORMATION ON NEW VAN SALES OR USED VAN SALES THAT THEY HAVE FACILITATED SELLING. I HAVE OWNED A SPORTSMOBILE AND IT WAS A GOOD VEHICLE WITH NICE SUPPORT FROM SPORTSMOBILE BUT I THINK SPORTSMOBILE NEVER DISCLOSES THAT TRYING TO SELL AS USED ONE WHICH SOMEONE IS FINANCING IS VERY DIFFICULT. I FEEL SPORTSMOBILE SHOULD BE SUPPLYING INFORMATION TO NADA AND KELLY TO ONLY HELP THEIR OWN CAUSE. THEY SHOULD ALSO KEEP RECORDS OF ONES THEY HAVE FACILITATED AS 2ND SALES IN ORDER TO SEE WHO IS FINANCING THESE VEHICLES. I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT SPORTSMOBILE DOES NOT WORK HAND IN HAND WITH A PARTICULAR LENDER ON THEIR SALES.

Your post hurts my eyes. But, I agree, more financing options would be nice.

YOWZA. check your caps lock key, I think it's stuck!

Wells Fargo will finance you. They just need an appraisal of your vehicle from SMB.

Sportsmobile does not work hand in hand with a particular lender on their sales.

From SMB website
Financing Through Sportsmobile. We can arrange financing for up to 15 years through E-Trade Financial Services, the nation's largest RV finance organization.

What am I missing?

financing

this post is to help people that are looking to purchase a used sportsmobile. The financing from sportsmobile is only for new vehicles not used. I believe a database should be created to submit to nada and kelly to help the resale value of used sportsmobiles and facilitate this sales market. I believe sportsmobile as a company should be at the forefront of this to help all their prior customers as well as potential new customers. Most credit unions, banks, RV lenders typically utilize these guides which has very limited information on these vehicles but there has been very little submitted by the manufacturer.
